Queue Points
Here's what I've decided:

  • Any Queue Points earned through May 25th, 2004, will be eligible for redemption.
  • On or after May 26th, I will contact everyone who has earned Queue Points. I will negotiate, on an individual basis, something that seems fair for the number of Queue Points earned.
  • I will remove everyone's Queue Points on May 26th. I will continue to award Queue Points, but they will no longer have any extrinsic value.

Extrinsic? How are you using that? Seems like intrinsic would fit equally well, or better.

They will retain their intrinsic value as points (which, admittedly, is not much). They will lose the extrinsic value I put on them (being redeemable for stuff).

Do they have any intrinsic value? Having your mistakes pointed out to you is valuable, but that can occur without any point value being assigned. The points themselves have no intrinsic value, I would argue.

Quite possibly I'm misunderstanding the distinction you're making. Try again?

You might very well say that, but I couldn't possibly comment.

So, yes, they don't really have any intrinsic value. They are, however, losing their extrinsic value (the value put on them by me). I don't understand your original confusion about why I would use extrinsic.
